When Sunny Gets Blue - Ballad Bundle - for Instruments & Vocals


Here are our backing tracks of When Sunny Gets Blue, done this time as a ballad. 

From our Quiet Zone Collection

Sometimes it is nice to just play the melody along to a piano... without drums, without bass. It is more intimate and direct, to the heart and soul of the audience and to the performer. 

Suitable for all instruments and duos with vocalists. 

Bundles available in the keys of
F  (the standard key)
C  (in a female vocal range)

With this bundle you get three tracks for the one price

     1. When Sunny Gets Blue - for Melody Instruments 
There is only piano proving chordal backing on this track from start to finish.  

     2. When Sunny Gets Blue - for Vocals 
Piano all the way through, but with a short 16 bar piano solo at the start of the second time through. I know many horn players like to use these tracks  as well as vocalists.

     3. When Sunny Gets Blue - Guide Track 
The melody and solo are played on a guitar to demonstrate how they can be performed. Learn by ear with this track.

Sunny got me

This one has definitely made into my gig routine. Fabulous!
I play it mostly on Clarinet and every so often on Tenor Sax. It's easy to pick up and easy to improvise with.
It's quite haunting as a Jazz blues tune.

Larry, as a musician and producer (LES-WordMusik Productions) I sometimes use a keyboard track to build a complete song for a group performance or website addition. The beautifully played keyboard in "When Sunny Gets Blue" from Jazzbacks was the perfect vehicle to construct a Tenor sax lead production (which I plan to play). Finding Jazzbacks offers me a creative extension as a musician and producer. I always look forward to browsing this site, thanks, Larry!

Another Great One

Larry thanks for all you do to give we musicians great music to play. I’ve lost count of how many of your Jazzbacks I’ve purchased. It’s a lot. And the ballad version of “When Sunny Gets Blue” is another great one. Thank you!!


I enjoy so many of the tracks from Jazzbacks and this is no exception. I haven't played this tune since high school and it is a joy reconnecting to it. The track is solid. Good tempo and great for improv practice. I find I like all of the QuietZone buys I have made. Great to just sit back, pull out my sax, and go into the "zone". Thanks Larry.
